Caleb’s bike is Kona’s latest Process 134 CR DL 29. This bike has been a bit of a change for me as I’ve been on the Process 153’s since 2015. I decided last year that I was not rad enough to justify that much travel. The trails where I live in NZ, well, I should say the trails I ride are just not that steep and a shorter travel, spritely trail bike is more than enough.

I have made a few modifications. It’s kind of a down-trail bike. It comes spec’d with 160 / 180mm rotors, and a 140mm Pike fork. I’ve swapped both those items out for a 200mm rotor in the rear, a 220 up front, and a Lyrik Ultimate at 150mm of travel. I’m not a small guy and the extra stiffness provided by the Lyrik is definitely a bonus, plus it has a little more forgiveness for my lack of line choice.”

The SRAM drivetrain is mostly stock but Caleb is sporting an upgraded stealthy black SRAM XX1 chain, OneUp’s chain guide, and some well-worn Shimano XT pedals.


The SRAM XO1 rear derailleur and cassette are fully stock.
At 6’4″ and over 200lbs Caleb likes a stiff fork and has swapped out the 140mm Pike Ultimate that comes on the 134 CR DL for a Lyrik Ulitmate with a 2021 150mm Air Spring, the fork is set up with four tokens and 85psi.
SRAM’s Super Deluxe Ulitmate does what it needs to do!
The braking on Caleb’s bike has seen a few subtle upgrades, the stock Code RSC levers have been kicked to the curb in favor of a set of carbon ones.
And the 200/180 rotors have been stepped up at both ends to 220 up front and 200 out the back.

OneUp’s 210mm dropper provides a massive amount of drop and it’s cable actuation is super reliable, something Caleb relies upon with the amount of travel he does with his bike. OneUp’s comfy single lock-on grips are Caleb’s grip of choice.

A Chris King headset forms the basis of the cockpit. OneUp’s EDC stem houses a full EDC tool, including tire plugs, chain breaker and quick links. The stem clamps OneUp’s 25mm rise carbon bar in place.
Chris King ISO Hubs are laced with DT Swiss Aerolite spokes to rebranded Santa Cruz Reserve 30 rims.
The bottle cage is the Morse Cage from WolthTooth/King Cage and features more than normal fore/aft movement, OneUp’s large volume EDC pump also houses a Co2 canister under the end cap.
And coming from New Zealand, Caleb has utilized the “moto” brake routing, allowing for clean lines and zero frame wear. The whole bike is wrapped in DYED Bro’s Tito Tomassi designed geometric frame wrap.
